Kitty and her brothers and sisters Mittens, Lolli and Api were orphaned when they were only 1 month old, as their mother was run over by a car. I took them off the street, and while Lolli and Api were immediately adopted by a friend, Kitty and Mittens reimained with me and survived panleucopenia, a terrible disease that ends up killing a great numer of kittens. After they got bigger and stronger, Mittens was adopted by a loving family and Kitty stayed on with me and the rest of the crew.
